The Bacon Shakespeare Question

   
Cockburn, N. B., The Bacon Shakespeare Question The Baconian Theory Made Sane, The Francis Bacon Society edition, 2024, pp.740.

 

The Bacon Shakespeare Question was first printed in 1998 and for many years now has been out of print. Barrister Nigel B Cockburn generously left the copyright for his work to the Francis Bacon Society and this year with the support of its members, the Society has taken the decision to re-print it in order to rightly make it available to a new generation of enquirers into the Bacon Shakespeare Question.

With a new biography of the author by the Society and new foreword by American lawyer and author Christina G. Waldman, The Francis Bacon Society 2024 edition is now available once more.

 

‘Shakespeare was a Lawyer’ – Judge Nathaniel Holmes

‘If anything is certain in regard to the Sonnets, the Poems, and the Plays, it is certain that the author was a Lawyer’ – Judge Webb

The Bacon Shakespeare Question by the late Nigel B. Cockburn barrister of the Inner Temple builds a formidable, evidence-based case in favour of Sir Francis Bacon of Gray’s Inn’s authorship of Shakespeare. ‘The best single book ever written on the subject’.
